GLF Schools

GLF Schools was founded in 2012 in order to enable the federation of Glyn School (an academy in 2011) and Danetree Junior School. Together, we began our journey to become a MAT of more than 1000 talented staff working with over 10,000 children in 40 schools across 5 regions in southern England.

National Apprenticeship Week #NAW2022 - Parents and Carers Resources

Resources for our Parents and Carers

As a parent or carer, you want to be able to guide and advise your child towards the best opportunity for them. So, where do you start?

There are so many options available to your child when they leave school.  Depending upon their age will depend on the pathways open to them.

Post 16 students can join a sixth form, begin an apprenticeship, study T Levels at some colleges or develop their confidence through a traineeship

Post 18 students can also begin apprenticeships, apply for full-time university, consider a gap year, move into employment or even consider volunteering!

With such a range of opportunities now available it is important for teachers, parents and carers to develop our knowledge as being informed is the best way to build our confidence, and ultimately to support the next generation to make the best decision for them.

Amazing Apprenticeships has a dedicated Parent Zone, to help you to begin to explore these options.

Included in this area are the following excellent resources:

In addition to the above resources, this website has a fantastic series of Podcasts called the Parent Perspective to support you to support your child with careers advice and guidance.
